Part of Artisans in Action, this summer we're welcoming wood carver Edward (Bill) Thibeau as our Artist in Residence for the 2022 season. Bill will be on site the 1st and 3rd Sunday of the month, June through October, demonstrating his craft.

June 5 + 19 • July 3 + 17 • August 7 + 21
September 4 + 18 • October 2 + 16

Edward (Bill) Thibeau is a member of the Acadia Band in Yarmouth, the Native Council of Nova Scotia and is a descendant of the Acadians, who were expelled in 1755. His cultural background is often reflected in his artwork.

A wood carver for 40 years, working with knives, chisels and chain saws, Bill prefers to let each piece of wood reveal itself as he cuts away excess material to produce one of a kind small scale statues and carved busts of notable figures like Pope John Paul II, Barack Obama and Samuel de Champlain.
